I love cameras like this! And yes, it DOES look like a 35mm camera.

However, I'm afraid that older film formats like 127, 126, 110, and so on have little chance of surviving long into the future, in this "digital everything" age we inhabit. In a few years, I don't think that any kind of film will be available except at very high prices, for use by artists and serious collectors and buffs.

I wish I still had my collection of film cameras, but I sold or donated them several years ago. My favorite still cameras were an Argus C-3, and a Zenit-E, both of which which used 35mm film and could make for beautiful photos.

The unusual thing about this camera was that it LOOKED like a 35mm camera, but used 127 film.

127 film was snazzy. I hope it makes a comeback in the way that certain other formats have made a comeback.
